hT; 



PURITAN FEATURES 




attractive coal-wood ranges ever built. Flat surfaces 
and glossy enamel make it easy to keep clean. It 

heats to baking temperature in "double quick time." There's plenty of cooking 

space for an average-sized family, yet it's economical of fuel. 



30 Days* Trial 

Here and on pages 8 and 9 you will read about 
the PURITAN'S many features. But the best 
way is to order it on trial and test it in your own 
kitchen for a month. Bake and roast in its roomy, 
even-heating, ventilated oven. Learn for yourself 
that it actually does come to baking heat in 20 
minutes or less. See how quickly things boil on 
its extra heavy guaranteed cooking -top. Cook 
oatmeal on its non-scorch lid and prove to your- 
self that it won't burn or stick to the saucepan 
even when you leave it without stirring. Or set 
something to simmer and see how it keeps piping 
hot without boiling away. See how the mirror- 
smooth polished top relieves you of the dirty 
drudgery of blacking and polishing. Use it hard 
and long. Try it out in every way you can think 
of for a whole month. Then if you are not com - 
pletely satisfied, send it back to us, just as it is 
after 30 days' use, and we will refund every 
cent you have paid us on it. 

Modern Design 

The PURITAN is solidly built of iron and steel. 
The front, top, left end and fire-box parts are of 
the finest iron, the balance of Armco Steel heavily 
porcelain enameled inside and outside. The long- 
arched leg base blends into the lines of the stove 
itself. Door-panel ovals harmonize with the 
curves of the base. The rounded corners have the 
appealing beauty of the best modern furniture. 



Perfect Oven 



The entire oven is porcelain 
enameled. Heat swirls over, 
around and under this fa- 
mous "Oven That Floats in 
Flame," through insulated 
flues. That's one of the se- 
crets why it heats so fast 
and with so little fuel. An- 
other reason is the Oven 
Bottom-Plate of iron which 
absorbs heat and radiates 




it into the oven in great volume. 8-inch flue 
cleanout lid in oven bottom-plate. Oven has 
adjustable rack, ventilator, door thermometer, 
non-slam hinge, porcelain enameled bottom 
for easy cleaning, Ripple Oven Bottom. 

HEAVY GRATES AND FIRE BOX weigh 
nearly 75 pounds. Ash and Fire doors are 
concealed behind air-insulated, enameled outer 
door. Grates can be shaken with inner door 
closed. 

Completely Enameled 

All parts in the body of the PURITAN are 
completely enameled — inside and outside — 
we know the PURITAN will stand the gaff 
and actually be in use years after cheaper, 
lighter stoves have rusted out because of ex- 
posure to air and moisture. 

Cook-Top 
Guaranteed 5 Years 

We make the Cooking Top extra heavy, re- 
inforce it and guarantee it for 5 years against 
cracking, warping, or burning out. We know 
that it will last much longer. The PURITAN 
cooking top has four 8-inch cooking holes with 
extra weight in the lids — 1 multiple, 1 non- 
scorch — and a French Top section on which 
you can cook as on a griddle. The PURITAN 
is sold only with 20 -quart Reservoir of copper. 
Wide-mouthed, easy to scoop water out. Res- 
ervoir tank lifts right out for cleaning. Reser- 
voir cover enameled on under side as well as 
upper side, to prevent rust getting 
into your hot water. 

Other Features 

There is a special wood fire door 
for putting 19-inch sticks in 
fire-box without moving 
cooking utensils. Choice of 
Anthracite or Duplex Grates, 
for hard coal, soft coal, coke 
or wood. Sliding ashpan in 
an ashpit that stays clean. 
Floor Board porcelain enam- 
eled to match your range,' 
$3.25 extra. Water Front 
to supply hot water for 
boiler, $4.75 extra. 



trier* is no "good-luck" about the performance of 
Kalamazoo ranges. They cook and bake we// 
because every detail is thought out and worked out 
to give fine, care-free service to the owner. 



RESERVOIR 
LIFTS OUT TO 

CLEAN. Two fingers 
do the job in a mo- 
ment. Scrub it spot- 
less in sink or dishpan 
and slip it back. That's 
all. 



POUR COAL IN 
through this Pouch 
Feed without moving 
cooking pots. Stands 
open without holding, 
leaving both hands 
free for the scuttle. 



FLUE CLEAN- 
OUT LID in oven bot- 
tom. Clean flues mean 
20% to 50% better 
oven heating and fuel 
economy. Also an ideal 
place for cooking 
soups, stews, etc. 



OVEN WIPES 
CLEAN in a moment 
because it is com- 
pletely porcelain en- 
ameled — top, walls, 
back and bottom. 
Keeps oven clean and 
free from odors. 



THERMOMETER 
TELLS OVEN HEAT 
in actual degrees. 
Reads the same as the 
oven heat instructions 
in your cook book. 
Takes the "guesswork"' 
out of baking.

COMPANY HAS BIGGESTBUSINESS IN ALL 



**> 




Dear Friends: 

AS I WRITE this message to you, our Company is just 
i\ completing its thirty-fifth year of life and service. 
•£** And I am happy and proud to tell you that it has 
been the "biggest," most successful year of all our his- 
tory! Thousands more people came to us for their stoves 
and furnaces than ever before. In fact, more people 
bought Kalamazoos in the first ten months of 1935 
than in any other full year since our Company was 
founded in 1900. 

During this great year we added 800 neiw workers to our 
employment roll. We built three large additions to our 
factory buildings here at Kalamazoo, adding 57,050 
square feet of working space. We opened two new fac- 
tory warehouses, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and 
Springfield, Massachusetts, for the better and quicker 
service of our friends in those parts of the country. It 
has been a great year of growth and progress. 

To Our Old Friends 
A Sincere "Thank You" . . . 

Much of this success we owe to you old customer -friends 
of Kalamazoo. You have given us as full a measure of 
loyalty as any company could ever wish for. You have 
helped us with your suggestions for improvements and 
new models. You have spoken well of us to strangers. 
And you have sent your friends to us when they have 
needed heaters, ranges, furnaces. This Company is your 
company. Together we have built it up from tiny begin- 
nings to the best and busiest stove and furnace factory 
in America. And so when I tell you this story of a suc- 
cessful year, I know that you will be as happy and proud 
of its record as we are. 

Grateful for your friendship and for your help, we give you 
our pledge that the principles which won and have held 
your friendship shall be maintained. We shall continue 
to build our stoves and furnaces the very best we know 
how — from the finest materials that money can buy. 
We shall continue to sell them "Direct to You" from the 
factory at the FACTORY PRICE. And you can send 
any of your friends to us, secure in the knowledge that 
here at Kalamazoo there will always be a square deal for 
everybody.

36 YEAR HISTORY 

i>fiL Statement 




. . . and a Word About Prices 

Kalamazoo catalog prices are FACTORY 
PRICES, based on manufacturing costs 
The PRINCE's price, for example, 
depends on the amount of wages 
paid for building it, AND THE 
COST OF THE IRON AND 
STEEL IN IT. 

Now, I don't mean to hurry 
anybody into buying a stove before 
he or she is entirely ready. But I do 
consider it the part of friendship to tell 
you that it looks to us as if there are higher 
prices coming. I do not want to say to you, 
"Buy a Kalamazoo now, before prices go up." 
But I do want to say, "We will keep our prices as 
low as we possibly can. But I honestly believe that 
prices of our raw materials are going higher. So if you 
are thinking about buying a stove or furnace sometime 
in the near future, it might be wise to buy fairly soon, 
rather than a little later when you may have to pay con- 
siderably more for the same article." 

To People who Don't Know Us Yet 

To you people who have never yet owned a Kalamazoo, may I say 
a very few words? When any factory stays in business for 36 years, 
growing bigger and stronger year after year, through good times and 
bad — doesn't it look as if it must be making and selling a good 
product, at an attractive price? And when that factory can point to 
more than a million satisfied customers who sing its praises, don't you 
think it must be a pretty fair-dealing and satisfactory place to trade? 
When it comes to the stoves with which they cook their meals and 
warm their homes, "A MILLION AMERICAN HOUSEWIVES 
CAN'T BE WRONG." 

I hope that before this year of 1936 is over, we shall have added your 
name to our list of well over a<nillion satisfied Kalamazoo customer- 

friendSl SINCERELY 



Christmas Eve, 1935. 



THE FACTO RY%SAVE 





PRESIDENT 
Kalamazoo Stove Company, Manufacturers 



We will prepay trie freight on any- 
thing you order from this catalog to any 
freight station in the state to which this cata- 
log was mailed. There's no freight for you 
to figure, and no freight bill, whether you 
buy for all cash or on terms. 




THE KALAMAZOO IDEA is as sound today as it 
was 36 years ago when this Company was founded 
to build stoves and furnaces of highest quality and 
to sell them "DIRECT-TO- YOU" FROM FACTORY 
TO USER AT THE FACTORY PRICE. 
In those 36 years that idea has saved many millions of 
dollars for MORE THAN A MILLION FAMILIES, 
simply by eliminating the useless, non-productive, in- 
between costs, middlemen's profits, etc. 
This Company is a FACTORY — not a stove store. Pig 
iron and sheet steel come in; finished ranges, heaters and 
furnaces go out. Part by part, we manufacture them 
complete. At every step we can watch the quality of 
materials and of workmanship. We melt the iron, pour 
the castings, clean, enamel and assemble them into com- 
plete stoves; crate, store and ship them from our own 
factory warehouses. So when you buy a Kalamazoo you 
deal with the men who actually make your product — 
men who have only one job to do. You eliminate extra 
selling costs — saving them for your own pocket. 

The Factory Is Responsible to You 

Direct dealing means that the Factory itself is directly 
answerable to you for the satisfaction and perfect per- 
formance of your stove. There's no "buck passing" from 
storekeeper, to wholesaler, to factory, and back again. 
We answer to you direct, and our $3,500,000 worth of 
assets and 36-year old reputation for fair dealing stand 
back of our guarantees and are your protection. 
You are certain of quality, too, when you deal direct with 
the factory. Our 1,800 employes have been trained to 
think in terms of Quality First. When you buy from 
Kalamazoo, YOU MUST BE SATISFIED.

30 DAYS' FREE TRIAL and 
FACTORY GUARANTEES

We Invite You to Order Any 
it 30 Days — and Then Return it 

$100,000 Bond 

Behind this written Guarantee stands a 
$100,000.00 bond on deposit with The First 
National Bank and Trust Company of 
Kalamazoo, as security for the return of

Kalamazoo at the end of the 30-Days' Trial.

You also receive a Bond guaranteeing im-

mere CLAIMS. We want you to PROVE 
THEM FOR YOURSELF, to your own 
complete satisfaction. We want you to find

claims are FACTS. We will refund any- 
thing you have paid on it, including freight 
charges, if you are not satisfied. 

200 Styles and Sizes 

You get a wider variety in this catalog than 
you would find in 10 stores. You find page 
after page of ranges, heaters and furnaces of 
varied sizes and designs, to burn all kinds of 
fuel or to heat houses of all sizes. You have 
a wide color choice, too. 

Best Materials 

We select pure gray irons from Alabama 
and the Lake Superior region, melt it in our 
own furnaces, under our own formula. We 
test it hourly in our own metallurgical 
laboratory for just the proper content of 
silicon, sulphur, carbon and manganese. 
We have a special name for this special 
alloy— HI-TEST IRON. We even send 
clear to Albany, New York for extra-choice 
molding sand so that Kalamazoo castings 
may be extra smooth, even, fine-grained, 
free of flaws and blow holes. 

Our Own Enameling Plant 

The Kalamazoo factory has its own enameling 
department. The enamel is baked on at 1200° and 
1300° Fahrenheit in double and triple coat. A 
constant stream of enameled pieces flows across the 
inspection tables. Perfect lighting and ventilation 
assures cleanliness, true color, and absence of dust 
particles. 

Remember, a good stove or furnace is an invest- 
ment in health, happiness and contentment — a 
faithful friend to serve you for IS, 20, perhaps 25 
years or more. So give to its choice all the thought 
its importance deserves. Don't pay MORE than 
you need to be SURE it's a GOOD one — but, above 
all, don't try to "save" on it AT THE EXPENSE 
OF QUALITY. You'll be a sure loser if you do I

18' A DAY 



WHY STRUGGLE along day after day with an old- 
fashioned, slow-heating, back-breaking, dreary-looking, 
dust-catching, fuel-eating stove . . . 

, . . When, for only $5 down and as little as 18c a day, you can 
have a brand new, sparkling Kalamazoo Range to brighten up 
your kitchen, lighten your work and cook the most delicious 
meals you have ever tasted. 
Over 75% of all Kalamazoo 
Ranges are now being sold on 
our easy credit plan because 
every day our customers are 
realizing that they can actually 
have a glistening new Kalama- 
zoo range in their kitchen with- 
out missing the money . Ayear 
to pay, at $5 a month, figures to 
something less than 18c per day. 



THE MORE YOU PAY DOWN 



If you arc buying on Credit and find it convenient to pay down MORE 
than the regular small down payment, you can save money. 
Increasing your down payment earns you a Special Allowance, to de- 
duct from the credit price. You then have a full year to pay this re- 
duced Credit Price balance in twelve equal monthly payments. 
Example: Suppose the Credit Price is $72.35, regular down payment 
$5. Regular monthly payments would be $5 . . . But if you can pay 
$25 down instead of $5, you get a Special Allowance of $2. Deduct 
from $72.35 the $25 down payment and the $2 allowance. This leaves 
only $45.35 to pay, reduces the size of your monthly payments to 
$3.78 instead of $5. 



Surely that is little enough for the joy of owning a quality 
range. 

Times are better. It may have been economy to hang onto 
an old stove during the dark days of the depression. But the 
sun is starting to shine again and it's NOW economy to 
invest in the things you really need. 

Your credit is good with us. We 
invite you to use it. Turn to 
the order blank, page 36. See how 
simple it is to order. See how 
you can make additional savings 
by paying a little more than the 
usual $5 down with your order.

as your cash order.

W* 222 Baking Prizes in One Year for MrsHanft 




,v 



( 



Champion Baker is Mrs. V. S. Hanft of Columbus Junction, Iowa. She has 
won thousands of ribbons and awards, many hundred of dollars of prize money in 
county, state, and interstate fair baking contests. Knowing that a good cook 
deserves the best of ovens to work with, Mrs. Hanft selected a Kalamazoo range 
for her home. She attributes no small part of her success to the sterling baking 
qualities of her Kalamazoo "Oven That Floats in Flame "... Below are some of the 
reasons WHY this great oven is such a marvelous baker. 



jd 



VENTILATED OVEN 

A simple ventilator remove* all 
moisture and odors, keeps every 
Kalamazoo oven fresh and sweet. 



OVEH JOINTS SEALED 

Overlapped and welded construc- 
tion at all joints prevents gas, and 
soot leaking in to flavor bakings. 



QUICK STARTING DAMPER 

Opens direct to chimney, starts 
fire in a hurry. When closed, heat is 
forced around oven. 



CHOICE OF GRATES 

Your choice: Anthracite grate for 
hard coal; with wood plate. Or Du 
plex Grate for soft coal and wood 



BIG FIRE BOX 

Holds fire amply large to bank 
over the longest night. Designed 
to give a hot fire, quick-heating 
but not wastefully large. 

COOK-TOP GUARANTEED 

Guaranteed 5 YEARS against 
warping, fire-cracking, or burning 
through. Heavy, reinforced. PER- 
MANENTLY POLISHED. 




Most important, the Kalamazoo oven is heated all 
around. Flues and baffles carry the fire's heat over the 
entire oven top, down the side, and across the bottom 
plate. Every side is 
heated — all at once. 
The result is QUICK 
HEATING and EVEN 
HEATING, with heat 
equal in all parts of the 
oven. _ 

Another great feature, RIPPLE OVEN BOTTOM, is 
illustrated here. Old-style oven bottoms were smooth 
on the under surface. Our new RIPPLE bottom 
causes the heat to wash over the ripples, following the 
curves. The greater area gives longer contact with the 
heat, provides a much larger area of iron to absorb and 
radiate heat. The result is a quicker oven, hotter 
from less fuel. 

All our oven bottoms are heavy plates of cast gray 
iron which has the power to absorb great volumes of 
heat from the flues. These solid plates will not rust 
out, burn through or warp. Your bakings in them will 
always stand level. Bottom plates are porcelain 
enameled on the inside for quick and easy cleaning. 

Lots of Room 

Kalamazoo ovens are large. They will take the biggest 
size roasting pans, or up 
to 16 one-pound loaves 
of bread. They are 
meant for preparation of 
big meals for big fam- 
ilies. All corners are 
square — no pinched-off 
corners or sloping walls 
to steal away baking 
room. 






Oven Thermometer 

Cook book baking instructions are given in degrees F. 
That's how all our oven door thermometers read, too. 
This takes the guess- 
work out of baking. You 
can expect perfect bak- 
ing results the FIRST 
time and EVERY time 
in a Kalamazoo oven . . . 
No more need to open 
the oven door to see how 
yqur bread or cake is 
coming along — and no 
more fallen bakings from chilling. You read on the out- 
side exactly what the temperature is on the inside. 

Tight, Fitted Doors 

Drafts leaking into an oven cool it off unknown to 
you, make uneven temperatures, spoil many a bak- 
ing. To prevent this, every Kalamazoo oven door is a 
solid iron frame, hand-fitted against another solid iron 
frame. Every care is taken to keep them air-tight and 
leakproof. All ovens aje equipped with sliding racks 
of heavy-gauge welded wire. The rack adjusts to 
several positions, so that the housewife can bake on 
the oven bottom, near the bottom, in mid-oven or 
near the top— whichever she prefers. Pans, etc. slide 
easily on these racks without catching or tipping. 

Prixe Winners 

Many famous cooks always use Kalamazoo ranges when cook- 
ing for competitions. At the recent "Century of Progress 
World's Fair at Chicago, 21 OF THE COOKING AND BAK- 
ING PRIZE WINNERS USED KALAMAZOO RANGES.

THESE FEATURES OF KALAMAZOO RANGES 

MEAN BETTER COOKING, FASTER CLEANING 

AND GREATER CONVENIENCE FOR YOU 



Reservoir Lifts Out 

All reservoirs need to be cleaned. 
Ours lift out with 2 fingers. Scrub 
them in sink or dishpan. You 
don't have to tear the stove apart 
to get the reservoir out. 

Polished Top 

Smooth as a mirror, permanently 
colored and polished. Rub it clean 
in half a minute with a dry cloth. 
Or scrub it with soap and water. 
Throw away polish and brush. 



Pouch Feed 

Most models have this feature. 
Pour in coal without moving lids. 
Stands open, leaving 2 hands free. 
In other Kalamazoos the entire 
left end section of top lifts, stands 
open on a ratchet while fueling. 




Multiple Lid 

Lets you put pots and pans of va- 
rious sizes directly over the flame. 
NON-SCORCH LID on each 
range makes an ideal place to sim- 
mer or cook cereals, etc. 



Ash Pan 

Slides easily in and out of deep ash 
pit. Chutes above it steer ALL the 
ashes into it, keep ash pit clean. 
Two handles for easy carrying. 

Wide Reservoir 

Picture shows how easily water 
can be dipped out of a Kalamazoo 
reservoir. Many others (as at left) 
are too narrow to admit a dipper. 

Porcelain Enamel 
Cleans Easily 

A quick wipe with a cloth will keep 
Kalamazoo double-coat porcelain 
enamel clean as new. Welded into 
the iron at tremendous heat, it is 
doubly strong, resists heat, chip- 
ping and discoloring.

THESE comparisons are TRUE comparisons of different ranges— made 
with testing laboratory exactness— absolutely true in every detail. Prices 
given are as of May- June 1935 when comparison was made. All these prices 
are higher today. We believe they will go still higher. 

The ranges compared with Kalamazoo ranges were bought from re P u table 
local stores in scattered towns at regular retail cash prices— JUST AbYUU 
MIGHT BUY THEM— then shipped to our factory, tested, torn apart, weighed, 
measured and inspected piece by piece. 

The purpose of these comparisons is to PROVE for your profit and protection, 
that HIGHER PRICE does not necessarily mean HIGHER QUALITY. Un 
these pages we prove that a Kalamazoo range offers you equal and higher 
quality, at a price many dollars lower because of our method of selling direct 
to you from the Factory. Although we have room here lor 
only THREE Comparisons, similar comparisons based on 
our other stoves show equally startling results, equally wide 
margins of quality and economy.

. . . & (htdott audjftotf Ha ift&i totmd 



MANY a housekeeper has gladly gone to the ex- 
pense of equipping her kitchen with TWO sepa- 
rate ranges to get the advantages and cooking 
facilities that this newest Kalamazoo — the ultra-modern 
Pilgrim — gives you IN ONE STOVE. With it you can 
enjoy the cool comfort of gas cooking on scorching summer 
days and the cozy room-heating warmth of a coal or wood 
fire every winter day. 

The PILGRIM does double duty. It takes up only one 
stove's space. It costs only one stove's price. But it does 
two stove's work! 



KALAMAZOO S BEAUTIFUL NEW 



I 



I 



Combination Coal, Wood and Gas Range 
with TRIPLE PURPOSE OVEN 




The PILGRIM'S outstanding fea- 
ture is its ALL-PURPOSE, ALL- 
FUEL oven. When burning coal or 
wood, the oven is heated like all 
other Kalamazoo ovens. "It floats 
in flame." The flame sweeps over, 
around and under the oven through 
specially designed flues, heating it 
evenly and quickly. The heavy 
porcelain enamel iron oven Bottom 
Plate is a regular storehouse of heat, 
which it radiates steadily into the 
oven. 

But in a moment you can trans- 
form this coal oven into an efficient, 
air-insulated gas oven or gas broiler 1 

Just take the big square gas burner 
out of the handy drawer below the 
oven. If you are baking or roasting, 
slip it into the grooves near the 
oven BOTTOM. Slide it into place. 
It makes its own gas-connection 
automatically — leakproof. If broil- 
ing, slide the same burner into 
the oven TOP grooves and slip 
the special porcelain enameled drip- 
pan into the regular oven-rack 
tracks. It's all done in 1 5 seconds or 
less. 

A Big Oven, Too 

The Pilgrim oven is 18 inches wide 
and 19 J^ inches deep, will hold your 
largest roaster. Or if you are baking 
bread or cake, there is a level sliding 



rack to make even more room 
for extra loaves or cake tins. 
It heats evenly from all sides; 
you can use all parts of it for 
baking or roasting. No cold 
corners. Automatic ventilator re- 
moves excess moisture, keeps the 
oven air fresh. Outside door ther- 
mometer tells oven temperature at 
a glance. The oven bottom is por- 
celain enameled, you can clean 
splatter or spill-over in a jiffy. Non- 
slam spring on oven door. Ripple 
bottom saves fuel. We supply an 
oven rack of welded wires adjust- 
able to 5 positions; also an oven 
drip pan with gravy well and wire 
broiler rack. 

All-Fuel Cooking Top 

The left side is for coal and wood 
cooking. The 9" wide firebox is 
extra deep (10 inches) to hold a 
long-banking, fuel-saving fire. By 
removing the front end-lining, you 
can burn wood 19j^" long. 
The Pilgrim firebox heats a FOUR- 
PLACE cooking top. This cooking 
top is built of reinforced, selected 
Gray Iron, guaranteed for 5 years 
against warping, cracking or burn- 
ing out. Designed for quick heating 
and many years of hard service. It 
is permanently polished at the Kala- 
mazoo factory and will never need 
blacking or shining again. Two of 
the cooking spaces are 8-inch lids — 
one multiple so that cooking dishes 
of various sizes can heat directly 
over the fire, and the other a two- 
level, non-scorch lid for simmering 
or cooking hot cereals and other 



easily burned foods . . . Next is a 
smooth, solid French Top or griddle 
where you can cook pancakes, ham- 
burgers, etc. directly on the stove 
top. 

On the right side is the 4-burner 
Gas Cooking Top with AUTO- 
MATIC LIGHTING— no need for 
matches or pilot light; just turn the 
handle and the burner lights. These 
new burners give a quick torch-light 
flame, require less gas and are easily 
cleaned. They are round in shape 
and so placed that they avoid spill- 
over and clogging. Gas grates over 
burners are porcelain enameled for 
easy cleaning. 

Lots of Storage Space 

Below the gas cooking top is a sliding drip 
pan of porcelain enamel. Below that is a 
roomy storage or warming compartment 
8 inches wide, 20 inches deep, 17 H inches 
high, with a sliding rack. Stove may be 
ordered with additional Warming Closet 
above the Cook-Top — or with the popular 
Utility Shelf. The big drawer below the 
oven makes another handy place for 
storing cooking dishes and utensils. 
Sire of Cooking Top, 42 inches long, 24}4 
inches wide. Shipping weight, 680 pounds. 
Waterfront $4.75 extra. Robertshaw Oven 
Heat Control shown in pictures on page 13 
is. not standard equipment. $11.90 extra 
installed in stove. Stoveboard $3.25 
extra. Dockash or duplex grates — burns

other bottled gas.

Easy Fueling 



Non-Scorch Lid 




Concealed lever raises en- 
tire left cooking- top panel. 
A ratchet holds it open, so 
you can use both hands to 
manage the coal scuttle, 
making it easy to put in 
fuel. 

Warming Closet 





To the right of the oven 
is a roomy closet where you 
can heat plates, keep pre- 
pared dishes warm, store 
cooking utensils. Fitted 
with sliding wire rack. 



This gives you a slow- 
cooking lid for simmering 
or for cooking oatmeal and 
other cereals. A push with 
your lifter raises it into 
simmering position as 
shown in the drawing be- 
low. 

Thermometers 

With accurate thermom- 
eters in both oven doors 
you can always 
tell the temper- 
ature inside 
without danger 
of cooling the 
oven by open- 
ing the door. This pre- 
vents ruining your bakings, 
while assuring perfect re- 
sults.

IBERTY 



Fast Heating, Quick Baking 
STEEL and IRON RANGE 

Built for Enduring Strength on a Sturdy 
Base and Framework of Finest Cast Iron 

85 

Cash 

*5 DOWN 

*6 A Month 



THIS range was designed by 
thousands of housewives. They told 
us they liked the Cabinet style, and 
out of this request was born the beauty 
of the Liberty's clean, simple lines. They 
wanted the quick heating and quick 
cooking of steel, combined with the solid, 
4-square strength of Hi-Test Alloy iron 
■ — and we gave it to them. They wanted 
color to brighten their working hours, so 
we offered them a choice of 4 beautiful 
color combinations to harmonize with 
any kitchen color scheme. They asked 
for easy cleaning, and we clothed the 
Liberty from top to toe in DOUBLE- 
THICK Porcelain Enamel that wipes 
spotless with one swish of a cloth. 

"Lots of working room, " they demanded 
— and so we gave them a big unob- 
structed top more than 2 feet deep and 
nearly 4 feet long, and a Warming Closet 
or Utility Shelf the FULL LENGTH of 
the stove. They asked for a copper res- 
ervoir to heat their water faster and that 
they could lift out and scrub at the sink 
— for a BIG Pouch Feed so they could 
POUR the coal onto the fire direct from 
the scuttle — for an Oven Door Ther- 
mometer that would tell actual degrees 
■ — for a special lid that would cook oat- 
meal in a saucepan without sticking and 
scorching. All these things we gave them 
in this big Liberty range. 

18" Oven "Floats in Flame" 

"Most important of all, give us a fast, 
even-baking OVEN." So we put into 
the Liberty the famous Kalamazoo 
"OVEN THAT FLOATS IN FLAME!" 
On page 9 you can see how the flues 
carry the fire's heat to every side of it — 
how top, side walls and bottom are heat- 
ed at once and evenly — how the scien- 
tific NEW RIPPLE BOTTOM presents 
a greater heat -absorbing area, gives 
greater fuel economy. You will read, 
too, how the lapped-and-locked seams 
of the oven walls prevent any fire gases 
from leaking inside; and how the venti- 
lator constantly removes moisture and 
cooking odors, keeping the air of the 
oven fresh and sweet. No wonder so 
many Blue Ribbons from State and County 
Fairs hang proudly in Kalamazoo Kitchens. 
This Liberty Oven is ROOMY, 18 inches wide, 
19 inches deep, 13 inches high. There are 1,646 
square inches of wall constantly radiating heat 
in to the oven, so you can bake in any part of it.

FREIGHT 

Enamel Inside 
and Out 

A feature that distinguishes 
the Liberty above other ranges: 
it is porcelain enameled in- 
side and outside, which 
means that the steel can 
never rust out, — an expensive 
but valuable feature, real 
"hidden quality." The oven, 
too, is enameled on the inside, 
making it very easy to keep 
spotlessly clean. 

Polished Top 

Throw away your stove black- 
ing! The Liberty's top is 
polished to a permanent satin 
finish here at the factory. The 
design of this top is very spe- 
cial — four 8-inch round lids, and a French Top 
Section, 7 inches wide, Can be removed for 
easy cleaning. 

Copper Reservoir 

Copper costs more, but is the best heat conduc- 
tor, heats water fastest, keeps it clean. That's 
why we use it. Heavily tinned on the inside. The 
Liberty reservoir is leakproof, holds 30 quarts. 
Opening is wide enough to use a big dipper or 
quart saucepan. Below reservoir is a plate-warm- 
ing cupboard. (If you order the Liberty without 
reservoir this cupboard is higher, and instead of 
reservoir covers your range has a flat top giving 
additional working space.) See pictures below. 

Fire-Box, Grates, Etc. 

Fire-box is proportioned to hold fire over night, 
and to get the greatest heat from small amount 
of fuel. Your stove will be specially equipped 
with the correct grate to burn the fuel you use; 
hard coal, soft coal, coke or wood. Grate BARS 
of finest iron are very heavy, weighing 23 Vz 
pounds. Cooking-Top lids will not warp because 
they are reinforced, and of very heavy iron. 
Compare the "feel" of them with any other lids. 
Choice of 3 top styles — the two-door Warming 
Closet, the Utility Shelf, or New Console Back, 
pictured and priced at the right. A Water Front 
to supply hot water'for a boiler, $4.75 extra. Metal 
Range Board to match the stove, $3.25 extra. 

30 Days' Free Trial 

The way to be sure is to try the Liberty myour 
own kitchen on 30 days free trial. Then if you 
don't want to keep it, send it back and we will 
return any money you have paid us, also freight 
charges BOTH WAYS. Order Blank, page 36.

EVERY day a day of Thanksgiving for shorter and happier kitchen hours. 
That's what the beautiful Colonial-design MAYFLOWER has done for 
' thousands of enthusiastic housewives. 
Its big oven will roast or bake for a big family. Because it "floats in flame," 
it heats quickly and evenly, saves hours of waiting and cooking time, turns out 
food cooked "to the King's taste." The smooth, flawless, double-coat porcelain 
enamel cleans in a moment with a swish and a wipe. The permanently polished 
cook- top never needs blacking or polishing. A dust- cloth rubs its glass -smooth 
surface clean and shiny. 

Cereals can be cooked on its Non-Scorch lid without watching or stirring. The 
fire box holds a fire large enough to bank over night. Oversize ash pan reduces the 
number of trips to the ash barrel. It is a stove any good housewife may be proud of. 

Try It FREE for 30 Days 

Solidly built from heavy castings of Kala-

TEST iron, guaranteed for 5 years against 
cracking, burning out, warping. Actually, the 
Mayflower cooking top, with average care, will

Burns Any Fuel 

To burn hard coal, we will install an Anthra- 
cite Grate (supplying a special plate also if you 
burn wood). For soft coal (Bituminous) or 
coke, we will put in a Duplex Grate. For wood 
burning a half twist of the shaker reverses the 
Duplex Grate bars and you have a perfect 
wood-burning grate. 

Prize-Winning Oven 

MAYFLOWER is furnished with the famous 
"oven that floats in flame." Read on page 8 how 
heat from the flues is carried to all sides at once; 
warming oven so evenly that you can bake in 
any part, without danger of scorching at the 
top or underbaking at the bottom. Cast iron 
Ripple Bottom absorbs more heat from the fire. 
ENAMEL OVEN BOTTOM FOR QUICK 
AND EASY CLEANING. Ventilator keeps 
oven air dry and odorless. A sliding rack per- 
mits you to bake or roast at various levels. 
Door thermometer tells you without opening 
oven door the exact oven temperature in de- 
grees. Hold back hinge prevents slamming. 
Door opens down level with oven bottom to 
form inspection shelf. The oven bottom is por- 
celain enameled making for easy cleaning. 

FIRE BOX LININGS are pure cast iron 
heavy and air cooled at the back to give long 
life, and prevent warping. They are easily re- 
movable. End linings can be removed to burn 
wood 1934 inches long. 

Waterfront $4.75 extra. Stove board to 
match your range $3.25 extra.

out the minute the meal is prepared. 
But whether you use it just during the 
hot weather, or all year round, you will 
find this new BAKEWELL easy and 
pleasant to use, a wonderful baker, and 
a quick heater. There's lots of room on 
it— FIVE FULL SIZE BURNERS. 
Two heat the built-on oven. Three 
others are high-speed, direct-heat cook- 
ing tops. Behind these are 3 indirect- 
heat cooking tops for simmering, using 
the excess heat from the burners — 
making a total of six cooking top grid- 
dles, each 7 3^ inches across. They are 
well separated, giving ample room for 
pans and kettles. A very ECONOMI- 
CAL stove to use. 

No Wicks to Trim 

The BAKEWELL user is spared all 
this work. There are no wicks for her 
to trim or change. An asbestos lighting 
ring and a metal mesh VORTEX 
chimney burner take their place. They 
produce a smokeless, intensely hot blue 
flame. Chromium inner combustion 
tubes are practically indestructible. 
Burners light with a single match, are 
accurately adjusted by dark porcelain 
control handles. The "indicator" shape 
of the handles shows you at a glance 
just how high your flame is turned. 
Controls stay just asyou set them. 
Flame can't work higher or lower! 
Has chromium bar handle. 

Built-in Oven 

Oven is 14 inches wide, 18 inches deep, 
12 inches high. A heat deflector distrib- 
utes the heat from the 2 burners evenly 
to all parts. Oven linings of zinc will 
not discolor and are rustproof. Oven 
thermometer is an aid to every baker 
. . . Cooking Top is 28 inches long, 20 
inches deep. Height to cooking top, 32 
inches. Adjustment in each leg keeps

regardless of unlevel floors. 

Leak-proof Construction 

The BAKEWELL is safe and odorless because it is 
LEAKPROOF, From 4-quart oil reservoir to burners, 
the pipeline is of rust-proof copper, electrically welded. 
Thus, there is no oily smear to collect dust. The 
whole stove is very easy to keep clean because the 
entire surface is enamel or baked-on black japan. The 
front and door panels are creamy Ivory with black trim ; 
top rail and legs green. Cooking Top glistening Black. 
Enamel is all acid proof, will not stain. Stain-proof 
chromium bar handles. Floor space required 54 x 20

FROM 



KALAMAZOO DIRECT TO YOU 



With a Good Furnace Your Family Will Enjoy Better 
Health— Your Home Will Be a Better Place To Live 



WHY deprive yourself of the com- 
fort and health advantages of furnace 
heat? Why face another winter or 
another month of ills and chills 
anu doctors' bills? 

$5 Is All You Pay Down 

You can buy a Kalamazoo furnace for less 
than you would pay many places for a really 
good heating stove. Look at the prices on 
the next two pages and see for yourself. All 
you need pay down is $5. With a year for the 
balance, monthly payments are very low. In 
many cases, longer terms, even up to 3 years, 
can be arranged under 
the terms of the Fed- 
eral Housing Act. 

Best Quality 

Kalamazoo furnaces 
are A#l quality, de- 
signed by expert Heat- 
ing Engineers, heavily 
and strongly built of 
the finest materials 
that money can buy. Kalamazoo prices are 
so low because you buy direct from the fac- 
tory at the factory price, with all the in- 
between and middlemen's expenses or profits 
eliminated. We guarantee your HEAT — 
satisfaction or your money back. We guaran- 
tee your furnace Fire Pot for 5 years. 

Best For Health 

Nearly any doctor will tell you that one of the best 
protections against winter colds, flu, grippe and pneu- 
monia is plenty of warm air fresh and moistened, 
circulating gently through your house. That's the 
way Kalamazoo furnaces heat. They 
make use of Nature's law that warm 
air rises, cold air sinks. They heat 
by gravity, and therefore 
require no costly or trouble- 
some mechanism. 



\H'| 



Lower Cost Heat 



One furnace will heat better than 3 or 4 stoves. There 
is only one fire to tend. It uses larger fuel which burns 
longer. It delivers the heat just where you want it. 
Compared with stoves, it is cleaner, more convenient 
and out of the way. 





Free Plans 

Most important for heating results is the WAY a fur- 
nace is installed. Our expert Heating Engineers will

vidual house — without expense or obligation for you.

This "Direct-Heat" Dictator Furnace is exactly the 
same — part for part, feature for feature — as the one 
shown on page 30, excepting that it uses separate 
cold air returns. This type of installation is favored 
over the pipeless because : 1 . You get a more thorough 
circulation of heat, since you draw the cold air from 
the farthest corners of the house. 2. You get quicker 
heating. 3. You eliminate cold drafts across your 
floors. The picture shows how this system provides 
constant, positive CIRCULATION of air throughout 
the house. 30 Days FREE Trial. 
In every respect it is one of the most satisfactory 
installations. You have only 3 register holes to cut. 
You have first floor draft control. It is simple to 
install. You get FLOWING, HUMIDIFIED HEAT 
everywhere. The price includes all FITTINGS 
listed below. Firepot is guaranteed for 5 years.

from banking, give a deep hot fire, protect the grate. Dump 
grate of fine cast iron. Large coaling door above. Accurate 
screw- draft in ashpit door below. 

Heaters are quoted below WITHOUT BOTTOM TO 
ASHPIT, ready to set up on a cement floor. Cast iron bot- 
tom, or bottom with legs can be ordered for $2.00 extra. 
Heater LH-65 has cast iron firepot. The other two are 
lined with fire brick. Numbers LH-65 and 80 are tapped 
for 1-inch water pipe, number 210 for 2-inch. All heaters 
take 5- inch smoke pipe. 

Heater No. 65 will raise 65 gallons of water 25 degrees in 
temperature in one hour. No. 80 will raise 80 gallons 
25 degrees, and No. 210 will raise 210 gallons 25 degrees.

BAKEASY 

The Gas-Coal Stove with 
the Double Duty Oven 

The Bakeasy is two complete ranges in one. It will 
burn hard coal or soft coal, coke or wood, natural or 
manufactured gas. There are four 8* cooking holes for 
the coal side; including one multiple lid and one non- 
scorch lid. On the gas side are four big burners each 
equipped with air-mixing valve. 

Combination Oven 



ON CREDIT 
$5 Down 
A Month This is the outstanding feature of the Bakeasy range. In it you 
bake with either coal or gas. Change from one to the other by 
simply sliding in or out a false-bottom plate that carries on its 
under side a big square gas burner. It fits into place automatically 
making a sure, leakproof gas connection. Any child can make the 
change from coal to gas, or vice versa, in half a minute. An inter- 
esting feature of this oven is the flue arrangement. When using 
coal or wood fire, flues carry the heat to all sides of the oven. When 
you change to gas, these same flues become efficient air insulators, 
saving your heat for your oven and reducing your gas bill. Oven 
Door thermometer, ventilator, welded wire rack, non-slam door, 
porcelain enameled oven bottom. This stove is just what its name 
implies, an easy, excellent baker. Oven 18'xl8'xll*.
